in florida. but within the margin of error. also, early voting in florida ends today after the number of early voting days in that state is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frenetic pace on the campaign trail. both candidates have already held rallies in new hampshire, iowa, and wisconsin. >> you do want to be able to trust your president. you want to know -- you want to know that -- that your president means what he says and says what he means. after four years of president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. you may at times have been frustrated by the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. i have a clear and unequivocal message, and that is america is about to come roaring back.

declaring barack obama the declared winner in florida. that state finally finished counting all of the votes four days after the election. the win in the sunshine state gives the president a total of 332 electoral votes. governor romney at 206 electoral votes. this gives president obama 51% of the popular vote. mitt romney 48%. good afternoon. i'm craig melvin. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics. let's go straight to nbc news correspondent kerry sanders from miami. the election is finally put to rest. >> folks in florida have been wondering what is going on. the numbers show that the state did tilt to obama. he got 50% of the vote. romney took 49.1% of the vote. clearly, florida remains a battleground state. the question is, why did this take so long? part of the fact is that early voting was cut back by the republican governor rick scott. if you take a look at the newspaper here, this is the tampa bay times headlines. it says, no apology from scott. he went on to say, what i'm trying to do is improve the way government works. i believe in efficiency. i believe every vote has to c
. >> how more. >> steve in florida. promised myself to stay up until florida results posted. does scarborough have this much sway? call it off, akle rod, for the love of god. >> you know about this bet. joe and david axelrod have this bet. there's debate about the legalese, the language. joe said if mitt romney loses north carolina and florida, joe will grow a mustache. now, there's some thought that he might have said if he loses north carolina and/or florida. in that case, joe would already have to grow the mustache. we're going to work through all this right now on "morning joe." ♪ >>> i'm extraordinarily disappointed. i put a lot of time and effort into the mitt romney campaign from last october going to new hampshire to endorse him through my last trip for him the friday before the storm in north carolina. i was surprised, you know, that it ended as quickly as it did. but that's the way it goes. people decide elections. and so my job as an elected official is to move forward after that. i'm not going to spend a lot of time looking in my rearview mirror. it doesn't make sens
here. i'll tell you in a minute on florida, but welcome back to our special second hour of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's see where we stand this hour and how the president pulled off a win lastnight. the president put together a decisive victory last night. falling short of the votes he won in 2008 against john mccain. but he had 303. romney 206. florida's are still on the table. the state does technically remain too close to call. miami-dade county is counting 20,000 absentee ballots they tell us. that's what they're counting right now. that's in miami-dade. that appears to be the largest chunk of vote. if that breaks away the way they're going, it's impossible. i guess nothing's impossible. it's improbable. it looks like president obama is going to get that one too. it'll be 323 electoral votes when all is said and done. but let's go and show you how the president did it, if you will. i want to go to ohio because ohio was a big deal at the time. what was interesting here is where the margins were. it was all margins. this wasn't -- this was reduplicating the map. here's
florida has learned since. >>> ♪ and on this veteran's day, we look to the thousands of men and women who have served and we'll ask if their needs have been met over the past four years, and we'll look ahead to the next four years, you're watching msnbc, the place for politics. >>> earlier we saw president obama honoring our nation's veterans during the traditional laying of the wreath ceremony at the tomb of the unknown. one of several events being held to pause and commemorate veterans day, from the sight as and sounds of parades like this in new york city, to the sheer silence of families visiting grave sites at arlington cemetery. today we all pause to thank and remember. >>> were veterans' issues honored on the campaign trail? some say not enough. governor romney neglected to mention veterans or america's wars during his speech at the republican national convention and after president obama said he would continue to fight for veterans during his acceptance speech they were not very prominent for the rest of his campaign. joining me now is former democratic congressman patrick murphy,
else, it's another day to bundle yourself up. even north florida is in the low 40s this morning. as far as the big storm out west, mostly the worst of it will be in the northern rockies. blizzard warnings for areas of montana. tons of snow out here with lots of strong, gusty winds. the white is the snow already falling. some rain mixing at the higher elevations with the snow. almost the entire state of montana is covered with a good snowfall. the forecast for today, after a cold start, a nice afternoon in the southeast. new england, slow improvement. we will see late day rain in minneapolis. the rest of the country looks okay. through the weekend, that storm heads into the heartland. >> all right. we'll check back in a little bit. >>> peyton's potential pizza payday. headlines are next. >>> plus, the company that vows to hire 100,000 veterans. you're watching "first look" on msnbc. wanna see me get some great deals? it's a new way to get cash back deals, and it's called bankamerideals! i sign into my online banking... click the "cash back deals tab"... and pick the deals i want. i just
303 electoral college votes to mitt romney's 206. florida, and my friends, my mustache-loving friends, this is important. florida is the only swing state yet to be called. >> oh, god. he's texting me right now. >> axelrod's texting u ining us now. >> this is what he says. >> if romney loses florida and north carolina. what's he saying? >> he says a deal's a deal. >> a deal's a deal. >> and that he can't do the show today. he wants to come in thursday when florida will be in and he can enforce the bet. that's gross. >> you're in trouble, by the way. >> what do i do? >> you're going to look awful. >> the vote that's still out does not bode well for your mustache. >> you're saying it's not northwest florida? >> it's not the panhandle. >> let it be said, or the rest of us. >> thursday, the day of reckoning. >> david, i can tell you. come in on thursday, and we'll see. >> where do we stand in florida, joe? >> it's pretty close. the president has a slim lead in the sunshine state, but it's considered to be too close to call. and with florida hanging in the balance, so, too, is my mustache.
romney by 11 binders. >> florida tonight remains too close to call. so where's the good news, you say? here it is. the election was decided without them. >> you don't listen to anything i say! i have been bringing you the truth! hot and hard now for seven years. how do you repay me? four more years of hope and change! >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in new york. president obama crossed the finish line. now he faces the same entrenched political opposition and little time before very big deadlines. joining me now, chuck todd, host of "the daily rundown" and matt map wizard. the president said during the campaign he would veto legislate that tried to avoid or kick this crisis down the road by simply extending the bush tax cuts for rich people. does he still insist he will veto any such plan? >> well, don't forget he's always -- harry reid's the pocket veto. the democrat senate, the pocket veto, why he hasn't had to veto anything if something can't get through the senate, it's not going to debt to him, number one. look, i think the white house was pleasantly surprised and open to w
of the party, perhaps with their own 2016 ambitions in mind. florida senator marco rubio who has called on republicans to work harder than ever to communicate to minorities. guess where he's headed in two weeks? he just happens to be traveling to iowa as a guest of the governor. in a series of media appearances yesterday, virginia governor bob mcdonnell called on the party to change. he press advised a news conference to talk about the election. >> we've got to be a lot more inclusive and open and energetic in wanting people to join our team by expressing why these conservative values are good for people of all races, creeds, colors and national origin. >> the guy repopulation mcdonnell as the chair of the republican governor's association, louisiana governor bobby jindal. i know there are folks who want to analyze the campaign tactics and play monday morning quarterback about the future of the political parties. that may start, by the way, next week. next week will be the first time you'll see a meeting of republicans and quite a bit of hand wringing there. >>> it is thursday, which me
for president obama. in the wake of the last florida voting debacle we had resolved to make things better. in 2002 congress passed the help america vote act which allocated almost $4 billion to states to help them make sweeping reforms to the voting process, yet reports from tuesday night don't inspire much confidence that things have been fixed. in fact, there's a good case to make that republicans have gone about breaking it on purpose. according to the aflcia voters say 16% of obama voters waited versus 9% of romney voters. this is a system in which election officials are simply overwhelmed. there's too many stories of lack of informed workers and polling machines. if we're supposed to measure the fitness of our democracy system by the way the voting went, then we are grossly out of shape. current senior pastor of the first baptist church of lincoln garden in somerset, new jersey. nina perez. she's at nyu school of law. ben gellis is president of the naacp. bertha lewis. great to have you all here. >> great to be here. >> i interviewed you, i was doing a story about election administra
, senator from florida, arguably one of the biggest -- maybe the biggest -- republican winner on tuesday. people are looking at him as someone who can help the party thread the needle of finding a way to talk to the new generation, finding a way to talk to more of america. but a couple of hurdles that marco rubio has that his advisers are very aware of. one is, you have to find a way to talk in a more compelling, broader way for the party without alienating the most conservative people who are the base of the party, control the nomination. when we hear marco rubio talk about immigration, we're going to be hear him talk in biographical terms, talking about his parents, worked as a hotel maid, a bartender before they came to america from cuba. the other thing that they're very conscious of is they don't want him to be the latino candidate. marco rubio is going to offer himself as a compelling conservative, but someone who can also talk to hispanic-americans about why republican values should be their values. and that includes family values, that includes entrepreneurism, a free market. joe
women. and they're still counting votes in florida. not again. nine days after sandy's, the east coast is getting another had hit, a powerful nor'easter, threatening to cause new flooding and power outages in the same areas battered by the hurricane. good day. i'm andrea mitchell, the day after, live in new york. what many expected to be a close contest ended as a resounding electoral college win for president obama. after a hard-fought race spanning two years, so what should we now expect from a second term? joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com and karen, national political correspondent fors the "washington post," as well as "time's" senior correspondent michael crowley. welcome all. thanks so much. well, our daily fix, what are you looking at, chris cizilla, what are the lessons you've learned and looking at in the four years to come? >> well, yeah. i mean let's talk first about lessons learned, andrea. i would say republicans, to blame mitt romney for this loss in some ways misses the point. if you look at the e
votes, and mitt romney has wovn 206. the only state has yet to call is florida. where president obama leads. he has won the popular vote. the 113th congress will be composed of a democratic majority in the senate with 53 democrats, a two seat increase, as well as 45 republicans and two independents. at least one of which will caucus with the democrats. in the house of representatives, returns will retain the majority. nbc news projects that once the votes are counted, republicans will hold 236 and democratics will hold 199 steets. nate silver, as reported here every night, correctly predicted the electoral outcome in all 50 states and the district of columbia, assuming florida tips towards president obama as it now appears it will. last night voters made history on the issue of same sex marriage, a marriage equalifity referendum has passed in maine and maryland and is on track to pass in washington state. those states become the first to approve same sex marriage through a ballot measure in our nation's history. and in minnesota voters rejected a state constitutional amendment limitin
, terry branstad, said this. quote, i don't think it's helpful. florida senator marco rubio said, quote, well, senator marco rubio according to journalists, quote, distanced himself. kelly ayotte weighed in on "andrea mitchell reports" today. >> i listened to the comments. i don't know what the context fully was. i don't agree with the comments. we have big challenges that need to be resolved as you know. >> so you're not comfortable with what you heard him say. >> no, i don't know the full context of them, but i don't agree with the comments. >> you know, nobody sounded quite as annoyed with mitt romney in these comments as louisiana governor bobby jindal asked about the romney comments yesterday at the republican governors association conference. >> no, look, i think that's absolutely wrong. two points on that. one, we have got to stop dividing the american voters. we need to go after 100% of the votes, not 53%. i absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. that is not -- i don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're going
to have a better quality of life. >> then we have senator marco rubio of florida who offered a carefully worded reaction to romney, telling "politico," quote, i don't want to rebut him point by point. i would just say to you, i don't believe that we have millions and millions of people in this country that don't want to work. okay. and former mississippi governor, haley bar rour barbour, saying party needs to do some soul searching. >> we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. we need to look everywhere is my point. >> yeah. you know what? i will say -- and i don't hand you compliments often -- but you've been saying this during the primary process, it started. and now it seems to me that it's great to hear these gentlemen coming forward and speaking truth to what mitt romney said. but it's just too easy right now. it should have been done in the primary process. >> it's just like when i was talking about people in the conservative entertainment complex talking in ways that we'll never win the suburbs of philadelphia, bucks county,
involved in a lot of places. >> they tried. >> they tried. most notably in florida. >> colorado, too, and other places and it blew up in their face. >> because marco rubio wasn't sharing the angle. so this time around they said, okay, we will not get involved. in some ways it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't because i'm not sure -- i don't know that stronger involvement from the nrsc, and the national republican committee, does that keep him from losing? >> but do they get punished for not having the guts to tell jim demint enough? you know what, your guys are doing this. or do they have to do it now? >> i think there will be -- we were talking about this off-air. i do think there is a reckoning within the republican party now to say, do you want to win or do you want to kind of preserve the righteousness of your principles among a smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller group of people. that's what the election showed. >> i bring this up. some senate republicans think i was being unfair this morning to mcconnell and coryn. the way washington worked 20 years ago, there w
. the only remaining question is florida which hasn't yet been called and where the president still holds a lead. last night at 12 minutes past 11:00, 12 minutes after obama was first declared the winner in 2008 the president clenched ohio and with it re-election. but a few were too shocked to believe it. >> all i'm saying is, is that look, we've had one instance where we're -- where something was prematurely called. >> karl rove is here with michael back there with the decision desk. we would like to refer to this as cage match 2012, bring it, go. >> just before midnight while karl rove protested and romney held at his hotel refusing to give in, dave weigel tweeted -- nobody tell rove but the ohio gop has conceded and gone home. at 12:50 in the morning, romney called to congratulate the president and shortly after used his concession speech to call for national unity. >> i so wished, i so wished that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader and so ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this
